After The scream : the late paintings of Edvard Munch by Elizabeth Prelinger( Book )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Expressing the anxieties of the late nineteenth century and the uncertainties of the modern world, Edvard Munch (1862-1944) often depicted in his works dangerously seductive fin de siecle women, sickly figures, and isolated characters in barren landscapes. These powerful, haunting paintings are widely recognized and revered, especially his iconic work The Scream (1893). Yet few admirers of Munch's early works realize that the artist lived well into the twentieth century and was enormously productive almost to the time of his death. This compelling book, focusing on more than sixty of Munch's later paintings, reveals the surprising, vibrant work of a fascinating man who never ceased to grow as an artist.Following decades of restless wandering among the capitals of Europe, Munch suffered a breakdown in Copenhagen in 1908 and retreated to his native Norway. In 1916 he purchased an estate near present-day Oslo where he lived and worked, mostly in his outdoor studio, for the next twenty years. Although Munch never abandoned a deeply introspective approach to image-making, in his later works he expressed a new attachment to the visible world, adopting a fresh range of subjects and a looser, brighter painting style. The pictures of this period -- full of vivid color, evocative atmospheres, and visual drama -- are a revelation, casting new light on one of the most complex artists of the modern era

Becoming Edvard Munch : influence, anxiety, and myth by Jay A Clarke( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two potent myths have traditionally defined our understanding of the artist Edvard Munch (1862-1944): he was mentally unstable, as his iconic work The Scream (1893) suggests, and he was radically independent, following his own singular vision. Becoming Edvard Munch: Influence, Anxiety, and Myth persuasively challenges these entrenched perceptions. In this book, Jay A. Clarke demonstrates that Munch was thoroughly in control of his artistic identity, a savvy businessman skilled in responding to the market and shaping popular opinion. Moreover, the author shows that Munch was keenly aware of the art world of his day, adopting motifs, styles, and techniques from a wide variety of sources, including many Scandinavian artists. By presenting Munch's paintings, prints, and drawings in relation to those of European contemporaries, including Harriet Backer, James Ensor, Vincent van Gogh, Max Klinger, Christian Krohg, and Claude Monet, Clarke reveals often surprising connections and influences. This interpretive approach, grounded in Munch's diaries and letters, period criticism, and the artworks themselves, reintroduces Munch as an artist who cultivated myths both visual and personal. Becoming Edvard Munch features beautiful color reproductions of approximately 150 works, including 75 paintings and 75 works on paper by Munch and his peers"--Jacket
Edvard Munch : the complete graphic works by Gerd Woll( Book )

12 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a contribution to the literature on Edvard Munch and his activities as a printmaker. It is an invaluable reference work for print experts and Munch enthusiasts alike. Munch's graphic works have fascinated people all over the world for more than a hundred years. He himself arranged a number of exhibitions of his prints and was represented in many print rooms and important private collections in Europe before World War II. When he died in 1944, Munch bequeathed his vast collection of some 18,000 prints to the City of Oslo. In 1963, the Munch-museet opened its doors to the public, and since the bequest has shown Munch's prints in numerous exhibitions. The author's extensive research and the enormous attention to detail in the individual entries will make this the standard reference work for many years to come."--Jacket

"Edvard Munch (1863-1944) is Norway's most important painter and graphic artist and the only one to exercise a decisive influence on European art." "This beautifully illustrated book features the most important works from the Munch Museum, Oslo: a celebration of the artist's oeuvre. The museum's collection is housed in a specially commissioned building, designed by the architects Gunnar Fougner and Einar Myklebust, which opened in 1963." "The many facets of Munch's art - which expanded beyond famous oil paintings, such as The Scream, Madonna and Anxiety, to thousands of graphic prints and drawings - are brought vividly to life through three principal essays: Edvard Munch: His Life, by Marit Lande; Edvard Munch as a Painter, by Arne Eggum and Edvard Munch's Graphic Works, by Gerd Woll."--Jacket

Edvard Munch : 1863-1944 by Ulrich Bischoff( Book )

35 editions published between 1988 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HISTORY OF ART & DESIGN STYLES: FROM C 1900 -. A hairless, ghostly figure on a bridge. The sky orange-red above him. His hands raised to his ears, his mouth wide in a haunting wail. In painting The Scream, Edvard Munch (1863-1944) created Mona Lisa for our times. This introductory book surveys Munch's staggering capacity for psychodrama in The Scream and beyond. With rich illustration, it looks at the lurid, dark, and deeply modern visions that made up the artist's response to relationships and emotions. These compelling images, regarded by the artist himself as a means of "free confession," remain as magnetic today as they were on the brink of modernism. Each book in TASCHEN's Basic Art series features: a detailed chronological summary of the life and oeuvre of the artist, covering his or her cultural and historical importance, a concise biography, approximately 100 illustrations with explanatory captions
Munch by himself by Iris Müller-Westermann( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Best known for his iconic painting The Scream, the celebrated Norwegian painter and printmaker Edvard Munch (18631944) had the greatest impact on Expressionism of any Scandinavian artist. His intense, evocative treatment of psychological and emotional themes exerted a major influence on the art of the entire 20th century. Often biographical, his work offers a fascinating insight into the psyche of an artist. No artist observed and painted himself throughout his life as frequently as Munch, and few have revealed their weaknesses and anxieties as frankly. This handsome volume, which accompanies a major traveling exhibition, contains beautiful reproductions of 150 paintings, drawings, and rarely seen photographic self-portraits of startling originality. The texts set them in the context of the artist's life and career, and also examine how many of Munch's preoccupations remain relevant today

Munch : in his own words by Poul Erik Tøjner( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book Munch's own soul is laid bare through the translation and analysis of diaries, literary sketches and letters which have never been published in the English language. Preserved in the archives of the Munch Museum in Oslo to whom they were presented by the artist himself, these writings give a unique insight into one of the most fascinating artistic minds of the twentieth century. Munch was as influenced by the literary and philosophical context of turn-of-the-century Europe as he was by his artistic milieu, and by his own admission, several of his major works started life as literary sketches." "Beautifully illustrated with drawings, paintings, and contemporary photography, this book presents an intimate portrait of the artist's life - the early death of his mother, his childhood illnesses, his tragic love affair - through his own philosophical and literary representation of it. Interweaving Munch's artistic and literary experiences these texts provide a commentary on the artist's works, on his own personal philosophy, on the work of contemporaries (Van Gogh among others), and on the sensibilities of his friends and family. Expertly contextualised by Poul Erik Tojner Munch: In His Own Words brings the world of the artist vividly to life."--BOOK JACKET
